DI SK PACK 1000 Enhancement Notice We are pleased to announce that two additions have been made to the Disk Pack 1000 Utility Package. 1. Binary Load Demo for ULTIMENU - A demo of ULTIMENU' s Binary Load function has been added to Disk Pack 1000. This demonstrates ULTIMENU 1 s ability to execute binary load +. go to files from BASIC. To view, select ULTIMENU from the main screen, then select DEMO. OBJ and press START. This beautiful pattern generator is included as an extra bonus for purchasing this package. 2. BACK-A-DISK - Bad-Sector-Writer Option 2. BAD-SECTOR-WRITER Option 2 is a new choice on your Back-A-Disk menu. This supplies an alternate method of writing bad sectors. I still recommend option 1 as a faster and easier method, however, if your disk drive was purchased after January, 1983 or you own a non-Atari disk drive, you may need to use option 2. Instructions for BACK-A-DISK BAD -SECTOR— OPTION 2 " Follow all Back-A-Disk instructions for copying disk and determining the location of the bad sectors. Then select Option 7 * TAPE r\ U P I & G R*=*M 1 / t :. : r t_. / ■fc=* - J ■;, --^ Bad Sector OP. 2. To use, you must attach two long pieces of tape (folded over onto themselves) firmly to the top of the copy disk (see Diagram 1). Then insert the disk in your drive so that the tape sticks out when the door is closed (be sure tape is long enough to get a grip on when the disk door is closed). Next, enter the destination disk drive number (the disk drive you wish to write bad sectors on) and the sector number. Then be sure everything is set and type return. The screen will now prompt you to shake the tape. You can gently move the tape back and forth, and alternately push on one piece while pulling on the other. The computer will beep and signal you when the bad sector is written. Then stop pulling while it rechecks the sector. Note that until you get good at it, it can take 10 minutes or more to write a single bad sector. So keep at it, and wait for the computer to signal you that it is done. If you wish to abort the process, hit any key. When your bad sectors are complete, return to Back-A-Disk instructions before testing. Keep in mind that the programs you are backing up check 1 or 2 bad sectors. So if you can determine which sectors they are (by watching the disk boot in with the cover off) you can save time by just making those sectors bad.
